Health literacy and child health promotion: Implications for research, clinical care, and public policy

Lee M. Sanders, Shaw, J. S., Guez, G., Baur, C., Rudd, R.
Pediatrics , 2009

The nation's leading sources of morbidity and health disparities (eg, preterm birth, obesity, chronic lung disease, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, mental health disorders, and cancer) require an evidence-based approach to the delivery of effective preventive care across the life course (eg, prenatal care, primary preventive care, immunizations, physical activity, nutrition, smoking cessation, and early diagnostic screening). Health literacy may be a critical and modifiable factor for improving preventive care and reducing health disparities.

The immigration and health paradox: Obesity in multiethnic young children

Natale, R., Messiah, S. E., Barth, J., Lopez-Mitnik, G., Lee Sanders, Noya, M.
International Journal of Interdisciplinary Social Sciences , 2008

The rising U.S. obesity prevalence has disproportionately affected minority children. Previous studies have reported that among African American U.S.-born participants, those with foreign-born parents were significantly less likely to be obese than individuals with U.S.-born parents. Little is known about the children of Hispanic immigrants from Central and South America, and among 2-5 year olds in particular.

Adverse Medical Outcomes of Early Newborn Screening Programs for Phenylketonuria

Brosco, J. P., Lee M. Sanders, Seider, M. I., Dunn, A. C.
Pediatrics , 2008

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE. Despite the success of current newborn screening programs, some critics have argued that in the 1960s hundreds of children with false-positive results for phenylketonuria suffered death or disability from treatment with restrictive diets. Medically adverse outcomes after false-positive results may be a reason to be cautious when expanding current newborn screening programs. We sought to determine if newborn screening programs for phenylketonuria before 1980 led to adverse medical outcomes in children with false-positive results.
